Class 3 - Adorable Art

Class 3 created some adorable bunnies during their art class this week. The students painted their plates with pink paint. After it dried, we glued on ears, googly eyes, a pompom nose, and cotton ball cheeks. We added a bow tie to finish off the bunnies. The students loved their bunnies and pretended that they were hopping! We had a blast!

Class 1 - Lets Dance

Today Class 1 had the opportunity to dance along to some great music. We started by stretching out our arms and legs to warm up, and then danced ballet.  After we finished our ballet, we decided to dance around like animals. We hopped like bunnies, buzzed around like bumble bees, and galloped like horses.

Class 1 - Bunnies

Easter is around the corner! Our friends of Class 1 had the chance to make Easter bunnies with a selection of creative materials.  We painted them with pink paints and used construction paper to put ears on them. Currently we are still in discussion about what materials to use for mouths and eyes.  Please let us know if you have any suggestions!

Class 5 - Hip Hop

Class 5 brought their hip hop dance moves to life today as they followed routines and then freestyled their own moves! We started our class by stretching important body parts to help us dance freely around the dance floor. We then positioned ourselves on our special stars and followed Ms Deanne's cool hip hop moves! We then followed by lining up and watching each other share their own cool hip hop moves. Overall, we all had so much fun and we can’t wait to do it again!

Class 2 - Music

Music is one of Class 2's favourite things to do. But with such busy schedules we treasure the music time we create! Class 2 sang some of our favourite oldie songs like Twinkle Twinkle Little Star and the ABC song, along with some new songs such as Bell Horses. The friends of Class 2 loved exploring their different musical talents and sharing them with their friends!

Class 3 - Days of the Week

As part of their literacy lesson, Class 3 learned a new song to help them remember the days of the week. The song focused on the first letter of each day, "M is for Monday. M-M-Monday." The students enjoyed learning and singing the song. Each student had a chance to say out loud the first letter of each day, and sound out the word. We practiced writing the letters by tracing them on our worksheets. Great job Class

Special Birthday

Class 1 celebrated a very special birthday this week. 
With cupcakes and friends, it's easy to have a good time.  Class 1 & 3 danced the morning away and then met our friend upstairs to share a birthday song, and some delicious cupcakes! 
Thanks for sharing your yummy treats with us, friend.  A very happy birthday to you, and many more to come. 
Lots of love,
